Can really large, diverse projects succeed?

Yes, large, extremely diverse projects can succeed.

Assuming this post is true, this project sounds amazing. I’d love to know more about it. Check it out:

Regardless of who you would prefer to have in the Oval Office, this project sounds like it was an amazing success.

This sentence sums it up for me: “100% cloud-based, deeply polyglot, poly-framework, poly-DB, and, perhaps most importantly, unbelievably agile and time- and resource-constrained”

Wow! It’s always good to hear about great IT projects coming together and succeeding.
